Division Of Military Pensions And Benefits
We Know Military Property Division
At the Lowendick Law Office, our lawyers have experience representing military personnel and their spouses in Lawrenceville and throughout Georgia. When it comes to division of military pensions and benefits, you can be confident that we will protect your interests.
Division of benefits, including pensions and any other form of retirement pay for military members, is an aspect of property division. Ultimately, what the law is designed to accomplish and what the courts strive to do is divide all property fairly between the divorcing spouses. Our goal is to make certain that nothing is overlooked in this quest for fairness. Factors that need to be taken into consideration include the length of military service in relation to the length of the marriage, as well as the value of the military benefits.
Pursuing The Correct Type Of Order
Civilian retirement plans are commonly divided using a Qualified Domestic Relations Order (QDRO). However, these orders are not necessarily appropriate for military divorce cases. In these cases, a Military Pension Division Order (MPDO) is typically used. We are skilled in the use of these orders to divide military retirement benefits in a divorce.
